Product Description

Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Fume Blanc is a pale lemon colour with beautiful perfumed aromas of lively tangerine and lime zest, gooseberries and honeydew melon, with fragrant notes of jasmine and orange blossom. Layers of fruit build upon the delightful freshness of the sauvignon blanc, citrus and melon flavours are joined by an intriguing hint of ginger. Vibrant and refreshing with a long, lingering finish.

This Fume Blanc style of Sauvignon Blanc, pioneered by Robert Mondavi in 1968 is part barrel fermented before ageing for 5 months in French oak barrels on lees stirring twice a month for a creamy texture and seamless integration of flavours. The addition of a small amount of Semillon gives the blend a greater complexity and broader mouthfeel.

The grapes are sourced from the Wappo Hill vineyard in the Stag's Leap District and the famous To Kalon vineyard in Oakville. Wappo Hill brings the bright citrus and herbal flavours, while To Kalon brings the richness, weight and complexity.
